In this Deathloop walkthrough, you’ll find out if the game has multiplayer, how to play with a friend online in Deathloop, and whether you need a PS Plus subscription.
In Deathloop, the main goal is to get the game’s protagonist, Colt, out of the time loop in which he finds himself. It seems that the only way to accomplish this is to kill the eight seers who appear in the game’s world. To do this, however, players need to survive against Julianna, who can often be controlled by another player through multiplayer mode. Here’s everything you need to know about how multiplayer in Deathloop works.
How Multiplayer in Deathloop works
Once you start playing Deathloop, you’ll have the option to play in single-player, online mode, and friend-only mode. Obviously, single-player mode means that you are playing alone, and the game pits you against Julianna, controlled by an AI, rather than against another player.
Below we detail the differences between online mode and Friends Only mode and how to play them.
How to play multiplayer mode in Deathloop
In online mode in Deathloop, Julianna players will be able to invade your game whether you know them or not. It’s similar to the online selection of players in any other multiplayer game, except that it’s essentially just a 1-on-1 battle.
If you run into a situation where you can’t find another player, Deathloop will automatically make Julianna the AI, so you won’t have to worry about not being able to play.
How to play with a friend online
In Friends Only mode, the only players who will be able to invade are those on your friend’s list. This option is best for those who want to play with people they know, not strangers.
Anyone who wants to play as Julianne in multiplayer will have to complete a certain stage of the campaign. Once you do, you will unlock this option in the main menu. It will be called “Defend the Loop” and will allow you to invade other players’ timelines to hunt Colt for rewards.
It should be noted that regardless of the mode, there will be a distinct sound every time Julianne invades your game. This will keep your head on a swivel, although you will also probably encounter an exchange between her and Colt, which will also give you a warning.
Do you need a PS Plus subscription
If you’re playing Deathloop on the PlayStation 5, you’ll need an active PlayStation Plus subscription for co-op play or multiplayer.
That’s all you need to know about multiplayer in Deathloop.
